The Franchise: Chicago Cubs | Bruce Miles and Jesse Rogers

We kindly request that if you would like your book signed, it must be purchased at Barbara’s Bookstore. To ensure a smooth and efficient signing process, please present your receipt as proof of purchase.




In The Franchise: Chicago Cubs, take a more profound and unique journey into the history of an iconic team.

This thoughtful and engaging collection of essays captures the astute fans’ history of the franchise, going beyond well-worn narratives of yesteryear to uncover the less-discussed moments, decisions, people, and settings that fostered the Cubs’ one-of-a-kind identity.

Through wheeling and dealing, mythmaking and community building, explore where the organization has been, how it got to prominence in the modern major league landscape, and how it’ll continue to evolve and stay in contention for generations to come.

Cubs fans in the know will enjoy this personal, local, in-depth look at baseball history.




Bruce Miles has covered sports in the Chicago area for more than 40 years. In October 2019, he completed a 22-year run as Chicago Cubs beat writer for the Daily Herald in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Miles covered Kerry Wood’s 20-strikeout game, the Sosa-McGwire home run race in 1998, and is one of a handful of Chicago media members who can say he was there when the Cubs won the World Series.

Jesse Rogers has been part of the Chicago sports media scene since the mid 90’s. He covered the Chicago Blackhawks for ESPN when they broke their championship drought in 2010 and was an insider on the Cubs beat when they won the World Series in 2016. He’s been a television, internet, and radio reporter for ESPN since 2009 and was previously heard on 670 The Score as a longtime studio host for Blackhawks radio broadcasts.
